Inspired by a maple leaf quilt, with rows upon rows of large maple leaves, I started piecing the blocks. Growing bored with the simple repetition, I started appliqued leaves and embroidered words. I imagined something like this, with wind-blown leaves tossed across the quilt top.
But I didn't know where my eye should go. There was no direction. Maybe the original structure isn't such a bad idea?
Some combination of both? Oh dear, this version would take forever.
Balancing movement and structure, chaos and order. Still a work in progress.
